Bacon and Cheese Perogies

OK, I admit, I did not make these perogies from scratch. But why would you, when you can find perfectly good perogies at the Polish store. I don’t know where you live, but pretty much everywhere I’ve lived before there was always a Polish store. Luckily I have one really close to where we live.

Perogies are not something we have often, but every once in a while I do get in the mood for some good perogies. Now there are many different fillings for these perogies, from sweet fillings to savory. This time I wanted savory perogies because I wanted them for supper. So having said that the perogies I used here are filled with bacon and cheese.

Of course I had to add more bacon to mine so I sauteed some onion and bacon together and used that as my topping for my perogies. To actually cook the perogies is also very simple, just follow the instructions on your package but usually you just add them to some boiling water and boil them for about 8 minutes or so. Now I also grated some fresh Parmesan cheese on mine because I love the flavor of Parmesan cheese and garnished with some chives. This dish is so easy to prepare, and it’s so delicious. Of course you can serve with some sour cream on the side. Simple and fabulous.

    Lol! I’ve never even heard of a polish store. I wouldn’t say they’re “everywhere” In Houston we have all kinds of international grocers so maybe there is one that I just don’t know about hidden away somewhere? My fiancé is craving bacon and cheese ones but our local store only had some other type he didn’t want.

    I was taught how to make perogies from scratch this summer by my Baba (“Grandma” in Ukrainan) She is a pro at them, We made potato cheddar and cottage cheese kinds! We of course cover ours with bacon, onions and thick sour cream! I, in no way frown upon the frozen kind though, they are a lot of work to make – you wanna get a few people together to help! Yours look lovely – love the green punch of colour with the onions!

    Living in Phoenix, we do not have a polish store so either it is make your own or buy the frozen ones…. Either way I love perogies.

      Oh yeah, even the ones you buy from the Polish store are frozen. One of these days when I have time, I’ll learn to make my own, until then frozen perogies it is. :)
